Baseco Bag – DONE!

Dawn Hay is selling a pattern for her “Baseco Mahal Kita” (“Baseco I Love You”) bag. The pattern is cheap, arrives within minutes of order, and proceeds go to benefit the peoples of Baseco. Here is her original version, complete with darling sititchery:

Here is my version:

My modifications: My stitchery is not fit for public viewing so I skipped it, and I didn’t have any twill tape so I used buttons on the corners. Look at the packaging, they were purchased in 1961! My friend's Mom would probably be pleased to know that her notions are being put to good use even so many years after she’s passed.  Both the large (really-truly-Mother-of-Pearl) and the small buttons came from her button box, which my friend gifted me last year.

I inserted a couple of pockets, ‘cause I hate a bag without.

Go on over to Dawn’s house and give her $4.00 for Baseco’s citizens. You’ll be doing a small Good Deed and will get a very pretty bag pattern out of it!  Oh, and there's a giveaway for several bag kits if you purchase the pattern too!


  1. Love the spots and what a great idea using buttons.... Looks Fabulous... and a pocket well done... thanks for posting and joining together to make a difference to others not so fortunate.
